Thread: Greatest Kitchen knife makers (bit of fun)

    Same as the 5 greatest rappers of all time, think about it: Dylan, Dylan, Dylan, Dylan and Dylan. Why? Because I spit hot fire.

    My favourite knives( that I have used and or own:

    Carter Funayuki
    Shigefusa Nakiri
    Butch KG and Laser Petty
    Takeda bunka bocho
    Martell Gyuto

    Apparently I'm a fan of funny shaped knives. I like cleavers too (a lot) but I only have a basic CCK

    OK I'll stop driving your thread off into the creek.


    I think we could do a thread that's like "top 5 personal favorite knifemakers" or something.

    Truth is, even though there are very few great kitchen knife makers alive, there are more than 5 that are well in the running for #1 in the world, its just that they all do things differently.

    Personally I haven't tried enough offerings from custom makers to make a well-informed list, but the knives I've probably been happiest or most impressed with would be from:
    Shigefusa (amazing craftmanship, his knives are just a joy to use)
    Takeshi Saji (great cutter, nimble but has a "reassuring" heft, most of his knives look great, although some are a touch too "out there")
    and finally, although a company rather than a smith, Theirs Issard. Recently acquired a few old nogents and a massif 30cm chefs knife. The old sabs are just straight bad ass

    That's my 2cents.

    Cheers,
    Josh
